Walk-in showers are a great feature in any type of home. Afterall, who doesn’t love a nice, long, hot shower in a beautifully remodeled space? If you are working on a bathroom remodel and are debating shower options, here are some reasons why a walk-in shower might be the best fit for you and your home.
- They save space.
Bathrooms aren’t known for being very spacious, so whether or not you need the space or want it to appear as though the bathroom has more room, walk-in showers can help you with both. If you’re installing a frameless glass screen, there is no visual interruption through the space, which make the room appear larger, making it the perfect option for smaller bathrooms.
- They give a designer-look.
Walk-in showers tend to be quite minimalistic in style, which gives them more of a luxurious, high-end look that can boost not only the style of the space but also your property value. Kitchens and bathrooms tend to be deal breakers for potential buyers, so having a walk-in shower can give you an edge when your house is on the market.
- They are practical.
Hands down, walk-in showers are easier to use because they are door-less and step-free. This makes them ideal for people who have less mobility, such as young children or the elderly, who may struggle to get into a shower or to keep their balance while in the shower. Just make sure that you choose a flooring that is nonslip or has a slight texture that allows some grip, even when it’s wet.
- They are easy to maintain.
Since there is less hardware such as door handles and hinges, there is less to clean. This means that you have more time to enjoy a relaxing shower. If you choose easily-tempered glass, you can spray down the door and it’s clean! Other simple solutions like daily shower sprays can help make your cleaning routine very simple.Walk-in showers are also very durable because of their simplicity of design. You won’t have to replace hinges or door seals, so a walk-in shower looks good for a really long time.
